Richard Wagner to Receive Rotary Citizen of the Year Award
The Brighton Rotary Club will present its 2019 Citizen of the Year Award to Richard Wagner at Joey B’s at Brickstone on Monday, May 20.
Approximately 15 years ago, Rich worked with Deborah, a staff member at the Rochester VA Clinic, to develop a luncheon on Pearl Harbor Day to honor the veterans in our community. This event has grown dramatically to include the distribution of needed clothing, toiletries, gift cards and plenty of take-home food items that add to the thanks being shown to the over 100 veterans who now attend this great event. The event requires a significant amount of time and effort to organize. Rich gives selflessly of his talent and time to coordinate vendors, volunteers and speakers. Rich’s service to others does not end with the event. He often picks up clothing from Brighton Your Wardrobe to assist others who are cold and in need of a helping hand. He has also developed a relationship with Richard’s House, a facility serving homeless male veterans. Brighton is a better place thanks to the humble and tireless efforts of Richard Wagner. He lives the ideal of Rotary and in all ways puts service to others above his own interest. We are honored to know him and to honor him as a Citizen of the Year.
The award presentation is scheduled from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Joey B’s at Brickstone, 1325 Elmwood Ave. The event is $20 per person for hor d’oeuvres and there will be a cash bar. To RSVP, contact Deanna Krusenstjerna at Deannak@frontiernet.net or 10 Brickstone Circle, Rochester, NY 14620. Please make checks payable to the Brighton Rotary Service Foundation. Reservations are due no later than May 13, 2019.
